Well, I don't question the good intention of the question nor would I insist
on packaging it - I just needed such a tool and didn't find a suitable one
right away this week - the convenient tool name would have been png2ico, so I
just searched for that in debian and didn't get a match, so I tried google
and found that one and it works just fine. That's why I filed an ITP - I just
didn't know there's another tool available already :-) OTOH this utility is
just limited to doing what I wanted to do - convert a couple of standard size
icons into one single ico for a CD. Works like:
png2ico icon-16.png icon-22.png icon-32.png icon-48.png icon-64.png myicon.ico
How's icotool handling that ? Can it convert multiple iconsizes into one ico
resource or is it limited to one single png file converted into ico format ?
We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
